||ICFJ launched a timely manual on disaster and crisis coverage as Haitians are recovering from a 7.0 earthquake. The manual also comes with a complimentary interactive guide on covering trauma. This guide provides practical guidelines for delivering news in a professional manner while maintaining personal safety. The manual also provides links to other online resources that are available to journalists on the issue. The guide builds on the success of a 2008 training program on crisis reporting for U.S Hispanic and Latin American journalists sponsored by the McCormick Foundation.
This online guidebook is designed to help journalists everywhere prepare for future disaster coverage.
A PDF version of the guide, including an extended text and additional sections, can be downloaded in English.
